Prior is so behind in his spring traning because or a two-week respiratory infection more than three months ago. Questionable to say the least.
But finally, Prior is actually pitching. Because we can't believe anything that comes out of the Cubs mouths, nothing is more encouraging than to see the thick-calved young man take the hill.
He threw 25 pitches on Feb 27.
He threw 50 pitches on March 2.
He threw 52 pitches on March 5.
He threw 30-something pitches on March 8
He threw a simulated game on March 11, and he's probably going to throw one more before facing a real opponent. He might not be ready for his first start, in which case the Cubs would turn to a four-man rotation, but he should be ready in the first couple weeks.
